The pot hole is in the middle of the road and when reversing into my drive the wheel went down into the pot hole

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 21:32, Sun 5 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2186961.

The pothole has been present in the street for over 12 months and is getting bigger and is damaging my car alloys every time I drive out of the drive or reverse into the drive of our property. Today as the wheel turned when reversing it scraped the alloy and had dented and caused a lot of damage to the alloy. It is impossible to avoid the pot hole in order to get into the drive due to cars parked on the otherwise of the road and the position of the pot hole. I am a hard working nurse on the frontline during covid-19 and we pay a significant amount of council tax, and now I am going to have to spend a large amount of money in order to repair the significantly damaged alloy.
